Nothing to Complain About

I certainly don't want to make my comments about our sudden thunderstorms make it seem like I think we're in any danger of flooding, because we're not. And the water generally goes away quicker than you might expect, but not, I think, due to it being absorbed by the ground here.

Compare these two photos with those from yesterday taken from nearly the same place. I think most of the water evaporated rather than sinking into the ground. It's that dry here. Things were blessedly cool yesterday evening and overnight because of it.

We have a lot of smoke here now from all the fires to the west. Even without the pandemic, if I go out to collect the mail and walk to the store to get some milk, I'd be wearing a mask today. But we have nothing to complain about. My thoughts are with those of you, including friends and acquaintances of mine, who have had to evacuate from their homes.
